Thinking of You Card

I wanted to share with you today a card that I created with the Graphic 45 Ladies' Diary paper collection.  I LOVE the vintage look of this paper, and thought the stamped image would be beautiful colored with my Distress Markers by Tim Holtz.

These markers are a bit tricky to color with, but I think the image turned out beautiful.  I used the Ranger Stamping Paper for the base.  Then used Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet to color her dress.  To achieve the shading I just put a small amount of water on the paper before applying the ink.  Then I spread the ink with a water brush, and tapped the excess water away with a paper towel to keep the paper from buckling.  Here is a close up of the girl.

In this photo, you can see the Prima Cabbage roses were also painted with the Tim Holtz Spun Sugar pen,  I put streaks of color onto the roses then used the water brush to spread the ink around.  This technique gave the flowers a variegated look.

Do you have the Distress Markers?  If so, how are you using them.
Thanks for stopping in today.
